Brandon Marshall’s lawyer says he will face no charges in connection with the March incident in which he was accused of punching a woman outside a New York City nightclub.
Attorney Harvey Steinberg told Michelle Beisner of NFL Network that Marshall has been cleared in the incident, due to a lack of evidence.
The accusation against Marshall came shortly before the Dolphins traded Marshall to the Bears for two third-round draft picks, but it didn’t become public until after the trade was completed. That led to some speculation that the Dolphins only traded Marshall because they were worried he couldn’t keep himself out of trouble off the field, and even that the Dolphins might have hoodwinked the Bears into trading for Marshall without knowing about the incident. Both teams have insisted, however, that the incident wasn’t a factor in the trade.
And now it appears that the incident won’t be a factor affecting Marshall going forward.
